|With nearly ten years experience of combating climate change through reducing the eco-footprint of the food system, Food Plymouth and our partners and network members have welcomed the recognition of the Climate Emergency by Local Authorities and partners across the south west.
Below: Climate Emergency – Exeter Engagement
In this vein, Food Plymouth’s Ian Smith and Food Exeter’s Dr Rebecca Sandover were pleased to take part in a public event entitled ‘So you’ve declared a Climate Emergency, now what?’ at the University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus in Exeter which was video-linked to the University’s Penryn Campus in Cornwall. In the meantime, in a related initiative, Plymouth’s social enterprises and businesses are collaborating to help shape the City’s response to the Climate Emergency. Ian Smith is engaging in this on behalf of Food Plymouth CIC. We will bring you news of the outputs of these initiatives, the actions emerging from them and opportunities for you to to engage through Food Plymouth’s social media channels.
